Ann Arbor Real Estate Market Update – February 2017

The Spring Real Estate Market Starts Now!

Ann Arbor Real Estate Statistics for February 2017

Due to a huge lack of listing inventory, Ann Arbor is in a strong seller’s market with a 2.5 month supply of homes for sale. This is the lowest it has been for February since long before the real estate recovery started, when it was a consistent buyer’s market. The buyer pool remains very strong with a growing job market, low interest rates, and millennials starting to purchase homes. At the end of February, there were 279 homes listed for sale compared with 313 listings last year. The lack of inventory is pushing values upward as buyers compete for listings in their price range.

The spring market is here, now is the perfect time to get your home listed for sale! With this lower than average inventory, homes in great condition are selling quicker than ever.
